Wednesday Windings 12/08/2010…Sewing and Cardmaking — 10 Comments

    • Mr. Fix-It is awesome, isn’t he. The Ladybug saw one in a catalog and has been talking about it for awhile. I’m glad I’ve got Mr. Fix-It, otherwise that one item would have been most of her Christmas–they must be making a fortune on this stuff!

    • I am convinced that we’re all creative, we just have to dig a little deeper sometimes. Everyone in my family can craft and sew–I feel like I’ve come into it late and put it off too long, but I’m determined that I CAN DO IT! 🙂

  1. Wow! What a great project – and it’s already coming together beautifully.

    You’ve inspired me. Recently my Mother gave me my late-grandmother’s sewing machine. I don’t know the first thing about sewing – except what I watched from my mother.

    Perhaps I need to start with giving her a name! After the 1st of the year I plan to get her out and at least learn to thread it and do a few practice stitches!

    I’m proud of you! You can do it!!!

    visiting from iFellowship! Have a great Wednesday!

    • I buzzed out a little pillow last night in less than an hour. I’ll be posting it in a few days. Just a test project to get me going, but wow–I was so excited. It really is easy. There’s a lot of techniques that I’ll need to learn to make lovely projects and complex projects, but just getting started again was much easier than I expected. Go for it!

  2. Loving the wooden bed 🙂 What a wonderful surprise that will be! Can’t wait to see what you and Bessie make 🙂

    I got a new sewing machine for my birthday and have been loving every minute – when I actually have the chance to sit down and spend some time sewing!

    I’m very sorry for your loss. It’s been 10 years since my Dad died, and every Thanksgiving (which always falls either on his birthday or right around it) has been very difficult for me.

    BLessings to you!

    • When I think of the hours I spent making tooth pillows… 🙂

      I’m starting to wonder if that kind of grief ever ever gets easier, or if you just get better at ignoring it. I try not to dwell on it, but that certainly doesn’t mean it’s not there. Thoughts and prayers to your family as well–thanks for stopping by!
